    extra line breaks when pasting (2003)

    Whenever I paste from Outlook to another product (like here or Access or Notepad) I get extra line breaks.
    How can I stop this from happening?
    Thanks in advance!

    Re: extra line breaks when pasting (2003)

    I'm not sure what you mean by "extra." Mail clients usually insert line breaks in plain text messages sent over the Internet. Outlook has an option to remove what it believes are unneeded line breaks so the text only wraps based on the width of your window. I would think that if you copy from Outlook's "unwrapped" display, it should be fine here, too. No?

    (This is under Tools>Options..., Preferences tab, E-mail Options... button, "Remove extra line breaks...")

    HTML and RTF each have their own peculiar issues...
